Children of Mercury are smart. You're fast talkers, quick thinkers, and sharp dressers. Your mind is always racing ahead of the conversation. In the time it takes most people to formulate a thought, you've already come up with three ideas, worked out the pros and cons, and probably even decided which one makes the most sense. Because you have so many theories and insights at your disposal, you have no problem discarding one in favor of another. Like a gatekeeper with an enormous ring of keys, you will try them all until you find the one that works. You love exercising your brain and unlocking mysteries. As far as you're concerned, solving a problem is much more fun than having an answer.
